New aid convoy enters al-Moaddamiyeh city in Damascus countryside

Damascus Countryside, SANA – An aid convoy of 24 trucks entered Sunday al-Moaddamiyeh city in the western countryside of Damascus.

The aid included 7,000 food packages, 7,000 flour sacks, medical materials, winter clothes, health packages and lighting equipment, according to the Reconciliation official in al-Moaddamiyeh Mohammad Naeem Rajab.

He noted in a statement to SANA that this convoy is part of the regular aid delivery to al-Moaddamiyeh.

Rajab pointed out that 600 gunmen from the city benefited from the Amnesty Decree and had their legal status settled in the past few days after they had turned themselves in to the authorities as part of the local reconciliation achieved in it.

He went on saying that the army engineering units have been working on sweeping streets and orchards in al-Moaddamiyeh for bombs and mines planted by the gunmen in preparation to declare the city safe and allow the return of government establishments.

Local reconciliations were achieved in several areas in Damascus countryside in the past period. The most recent of them took place in Qudssaya city and al-Hameh town on October 17.

On August 27, Daraya city was announced completely free of arms and gunmen.
